A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is an integral factor in a child's life in foster care. Children in foster care who have a CASA volunteer spend an average of 8 months less in foster care. You can make that difference happen with just a little bit of your time each month.

Our CASA Volunteers do the following activities:

  • Visit their assigned foster child(ren) a minimum of once a month.
  • Communicate with people in the foster child's life to ensure the child is receiving appropriate support.
  • Write recommendations for court hearings, usually held approximately every three-six months.
  • Attend the court hearings, if possible, to support their foster child.

There are plenty of children that need you in Newton and Walton Counties!

Orientation consists of 30 hours of classroom training plus 10 hours of courtroom observation.

Check us out on Facebook to see how we are making a difference in Newton and Walton Counties!
